For example, the book brings up how expensive children can be. However, it does not discuss how to resolve financial issues and doesn't provide insight into how to structure your finances to account for a child. Men's fears, body changes, sex life, relationship issues... the author sounds the bell but provides no plan. The information wasn't surprising or impactful... it seemed more of a collection of what we thought was common knowledge.
The author also makes fairly sexist remarks throughout and the book. This made it hard for us to read as a couple. Certainly there are significant gender differences, however one would expect the author to explain those in terms of her clinical experience rather than blindly adhering to stereotypes of both women and men.
This book is actually a "should you have a baby or not" book. If you are feeling tremendous pressure in convincing your significant other to have or not have a baby, this book may help clarify some of those feelings. Otherwise, this book is unlikely to help you. Before buying this book, you should be aware that it is not designed to help you navigate a difficult path (parenting) prior to embarking. It is essentially designed to help you decide if you should avoid it entirely.
It's a pity, but positive experinces and feelings of families with kids are covered only shortly, making less than 10% of the book. I think that this kind of the book needs them more than child-free stuff, because everybody already has a childless life and can imagine it well. Imagining the opposite is much harder and this is the reason why people read books like "Baby or not?".
Whether a person who reads this book decides to have a child or not, I believe, the information offered in it will make that person "mindful" of his or her choice. This is a good thing. This is a good book!
